The News

Posted in General, Music, Politics by microwavebiscuit on September 18, 2007

It’s not unusual for me to get aggravated about the world of news but today I managed to get ticked off (enough to blog about) twice on my “My Yahoo” page.

First, here’s a screen grab of the “Top Stories”:

Notice the interesting usage of the word “Soar” in two different headlines.

Next, music news:

Music News

First of all, I really don’t think that “reform” is the right word there. Someone may correct me but I would use a hyphen in there as in: re-form. Secondly, how exactly are they going to re-form without Sid? Yes, I know Glen Matlock was the “original” Sid but they’re getting back together to celebrate (rip off aging Punk rockers??) Never Mind the Bollocks 30th anniversary and it seems quite cheesy to me. Perhaps they can take the show on the road and sell $400 gold circle seats.

So, there you have it. I suppose I get annoyed at the news on a daily basis (whether it’s the news itself or the reporting of it) but occasionally I get a bit bent out of shape enough to comment.

    Wow. I’m almost speechless – to think we live on the same planet. Come have a look at some newsblogging.

    @opit: I’m not quite sure what you are getting at. Are you suggesting that I’m not a good news blogger? I’d agree. I mostly write about technology and Linux. Maybe I’m not understanding your comment. Please feel free to elaborate.
